while browsing the web the other day, i happened upon a stunning image from the mademoiselle tara fall 2011 collection. i had once before run across the campaign photos (which caught my eye because they used a very pretty bike as a prop), but was embarrassed to realize that i had never even heard of tara jarmon, despite the fact that she’s been designing clothes for the past 20 years and even designed a line for target’s go international collection back in 2006. she has somehow barely missed my radar until now. so perhaps it was smart that she just debuted this second collection, mademoiselle tara, for the younger (and probably less financially endowed) set. she clearly knows me well because i would wear any of these looks in a heartbeat! i’m dying over the perfect color combination in the look above (something about lavender and rust has been calling to me lately), and i’m absolutely smitten with the darling little drop waist mustard number below. and don’t irina lazareanu’s cute poses just take the cake?
